County first, 6th N Wales record?

Caught this tiny micro this morning (hence poor pic) and put it on Back Garden Moths where it has been identified as a probable hawthorn moth scythropia crataegella. Only 5 previous North Wales records all around Gresford/Marford area and hence none in Gwynedd. Interestingly the first record in 1984 was Britain's first record of a second brood (8/9/84)! Better get this round to county recorder.
Caught a second one following night and managed a slightly better pic
